Supporting wide variety of softwares are one of the many keys to the success of a new hardware platform. Linux and GCC shall be helpful. Given the market push is so high, I believe there are data to support the high performance to energy ratio. Is there any data available online?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
